A delight to work with and her style and presentation were amazing

5 stars - Lady Motown are Highly Recommended booked Lady Motown for their event in Somerset

“Please can you pass on my thanks to Shola (Lady Motown) for her performances at our carnival on Saturday last.  She was a delight to work with and her style and presentation were amazing.  I only managed to catch glimpses of her act but what I saw, I was very impressed with, and I have received many appreciative comments from members of the public who did get to see her performances in full. I would have no hesitation in recommending Shola to any other organisation and would love to have her return to Bridgwater Carnival at some time in the future.”

Lady Motown is one of the few female singers doing an all-Motown tribute. With her 3-octave vocal range she can belt out songs from not only the girl groups but also from artists like The Temptations Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder. She recently performed for hundreds of people weekly in theatres all over the UK as part of the hit Motown show How Sweet It Is.

Lady Motown's solo show comes with a variety of different options. If you'd like a 2-set performance the first set can contain a Diana Ross mini tribute or can focus on the songs of the much loved and recently departed Michael Jackson during his Motown years. Or if for example you'd like some mellow music during a sit-down dinner Shola can provide a jazz set. The second set will then be her trademark “Motown Party” set put together to get people on the dance floor for a good boogie.

Onstage Lady Motown has all the grace glitz and glamour of a true diva and truly looks the part with her graceful silhouette lovely smile and diamante jewellery. She can also slip into a mini dress and go-go boots for a more casual look and loves to “get down” during the party numbers.

Her vocals have been described as sounding like “chocolate soul” and she has a big voice that attracts positive feedback wherever she sings. With a warm inviting stage presence and charming persona it's hard not to be enthralled by her performance.

She spent eight years living in the USA and worked with one of the world's top vocal coaches Seth Riggs (he's coached Stevie Wonder Natalie Cole Michael Jackson and Luther Vandross). Shola has sung at gigs supporting stars like Florence + The Machine, Paul Young and Tony Hadley at top venues such as Shepherd's Bush Empire and Hyde Park and has entertained at many weddings parties and corporate functions in front of audiences as large as 15000. She has also performed overseas in cities such as New York Los Angeles and Moscow. She has also sung in Bahrain and been featured on Iranian TV.

The show can come with just Lady Motown and top notch Bose L1 model II PA suitable for up to 250 people or for events where a full band is required she can provide a 5kW PA full stage lighting disco and sound/lighting engineer for an additional fee.

If you opt for the live jazz show you won't be disappointed. Lady Motown had a year-long residency at Harvey Nichols in London performing her jazz set to many highly satisfied customers. Her band members have played with Courtney Pine Soul II Soul Chaka Khan The Waterboys and other successful acts. She has been praised for her great jazz phrasing and loves singing the standards.

Duo & Trio
And for when just one diva isn't enough you can book 'The Motown Sisters'. Available in duo or trio format Lady Motown teams up with one or two additional girls. Both are amazing singers in their own right and have appeared in the West End shows 'Dancing in the streets' and 'The Lion King', they have sung  on television and all around the world from Amsterdam to Australia! You are guaranteed an electrifying show of Motown hits!!

The Motown Experience
The Motown Experience is an amazing 7-piece ensemble. They perform all your favourite Motown hits. Imagine a show with snappy dance moves and 4-part male vocal harmonies with repertoire from The Temptations, The Jackson Five and more. Then imagine three silky-voiced ladies performing songs from The Supremes and The Vandellas. And to cap it all, the entire group of 7 vocalists also appear on stage performing dance floor fillers like Happy and Uptown Funk. Your audience is guaranteed an uplifting evening of dancing they won't forget in a hurry. Perfect for corporate events and large parties! Please speak to your entertainemnt co-ordinator for a quote.

DJ Service
For a small additional fee, Lady Motown can also offer a DJ service to save you the hassle and added expense of having to book a separate DJ. Tunes played will be mainly from the 60s, 70s and 80s but Lady Motown will agree your requests with you ahead of time and if you provide a playlist before the event she will make sure she has all your favourite tracks available on the night.

Lady Motown is also a member of Toastmasters International and is the president of her local club. She is a humorous public speaker and can be booked to act as MC at your event. Her 'Motown MC' service is fun, musical and highly professional. If you prefer she can also sing a handful of songs throughout your event or wedding day (including your requests) to make the proceedings completely unique and special.
